Issue Details

I am distributing my application through the use of an installer built in LabVIEW. However, this installer is not including NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX) even when I include my driver runtimes. How can I ensure that NI MAX is installed on my deployment computers as part of the installer?

Solution

To manually include NI MAX in your installer, follow the instructions below:
  1. Navigate to the Additional Installers category in the properties for your installer build specification.
  2. Uncheck Automatically select recommended installers to allow custom selection of installers.
  3. Uncheck Only display runtime installers so that NI Measurement & Automation Explorer will appear as an option.
  4. Select NI Measurement & Automation Explorer, then save your changes and build the installer.

Additional Information

By default, LabVIEW Installers automatically choose which additional installers to include based on the application. This typically only includes runtime installers, and many driver runtimes do not include NI MAX.
